The Recount Results are In: Buxton Loses by One Vote 


I'm pleased that the recount process we pushed for resulted in eight more ballots being counted in the race. At the end of the day, it's better to have lost in a system that counts all votes than win in a system that falls short. Thank you to all those who helped count votes (and recount votes!) and supported my work throughout the years. I will continue to serve my community and state in different ways and look forward to working with so many of you in new capacities.  Gratefully,  Sarah

Buxton's Top Priorities for 2017 Legislative Session

I believe that, in Vermont, if you work hard and do your part, you and your family should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. That’s why I’m running for re-election. I’m proud of the progress we’ve made rebuilding Vermont’s economy – but there’s more work to do. Next session I want to focus on bolstering our workforce training programs and creating incentives to help businesses expand and adapt to 21st century demands. I also plan to protect our Medicare and Medicaid programs, working to ensure that they are funded sustainably so that seniors, the disabled, and children living in our community can use these services long into the future.  I outline my overarching priorities below, and welcome your feedback on how they represent your own views and interests. 

1. Promote greater financial security for all Vermonters.

2. Improve our state's infrastructure, policies, and practices so that the next generation is better off than we are now.

3. Create a more effective health care system that is affordable and accessible to all Vermonters.
